. thirdly, this ongoing issue of how to deal with the impending defense cuts brought about through sequestration are a critically important issue for our nation. $1 trillion in defense cuts over the next two years is simply not acceptable to be able to defend our country and provide you, the men and women who will be in the military, with the support and equipment and material that you need to defend our nation's interests. while president obama has been largely a bystander and not forceful in preventing defense cuts, governor romney has been unequivocal that this policy must be reversed and more resources need to be applied to defense. i am delighted that governor romney has chosen at virginia military institute today to be able to deliver remarks on america's leadership role in the world and on foreign policy. he is a man of immense principle, immensely successful as a leader in the public and private sector. he was commander of the massachusetts national guard, and understands very well what the men and women in the national guard do to support the cause of freedom. please join
this fight of the middle class comes at a time when the president is on the defensive and lost some ground in key areas. cnn orc poll tonight shows the president's lead is half a point outside the margin of error. last month he was leading with nine points. we told you last night about a pughel poll which shows romney leading obama. you can see also barely outside the margin of error. in that same poll, the president's 18-point lead among women disappeared. he's now running even with romney. so who is winning this vital war over middle class tax cuts? rah ham salon joins us and john avlon, senior political columnist at "newsweek" and "the daily beast." this debate over $5 trillion and what you're trying to do and on the backs of the middle class, this isn't just about a number and who is using a number specifically in what way. it goes to the heart of whether the president is going to win. >> in 2008, barack obama did something incredibly brilliant. he actually managed to outflank the republicans on taxes, which was their biggest, most potent issue for literally decades, by saying, hey, if
matter. after the sentence was handed down, both the prosecution and defense spoke before a swarm of media. first we're going to hear from prosecutor joseph mc mcgeddedin. >> i believe the sentence was a wise one. the harm he caused and the need to remove him from society. the victims' statements were a vivid reminder of the defendant's brutal crimes. frankly the defendant's behavior and statements today were consistent with the behavior throughout the period of time covered by the trial. that he displayed deservians, narcissism, a lack of feeling for the pain he caused others, and to the end an unwillingness to accept responsibility. >> we're going to challenge the fact we needed more time to prepare adequately jerry's defense. we needed more time to go through that information, to develop further investigative needs, and we simply ran out of time. we had to cut off our investigation to get ready to go to trial. we were literally preparing the night before each day with material that in some cases came in within days of the trial starting. >> reporter: again defense attorney joe

in iraq and afghanistan as if it were defense spending. they did it as an emergency so this is just the base defense budget. this just shows how the base defense budget went up after 9/11, not including that emergency spending on iraq and afghanistan. now here's the amazing thing. watch this. so this is where our spending is now. that's what the blue line means. if we were to let our spending drop like we did after the end of the cold war, our spending would look like this. now you know the sequester that you've been hearing about with the draconian defense cuts, this is what our spending on the military would be like with the sequester. that's the purple line there. president obama's plan, what the pentagon and president obama have agreed should happen and what their plan is if president obama gets a second term is this line. military spending to have go like that. the third one there in the stack. essentially setting the spending levels we have got now as a new normal, even though he keeps spending going slightly up. people say there's no difference between the candidates. there's
defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut. when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. the greater tragedy of it all is that we're missing an historic opportunity to win new friends who share our values in the middle east. >> rose: he also argued syrian rebels should be armed and addressed relations with israel. >> for the sake of peace we must make clear to iran through actions not just words that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. i'll reaffirm our historic ties to israel and our abiding commitment to its security. the world must never see any daylight between our two nations. >> rose: the governor sought to capitalize on his debate performance. the next two debates will address global affairs. new polls show governor romney and president obama neck in neck in the race for president. joining me now from washington, tom friedman of the "new york times." >> great to be with you, charlie. thank you. >> rose: so tell me what you thought of the governor's speech today and did you le

take you three or four years before you have to make the changes, but there is no defense to making the changes. even if it is a historical building. that is not a defense. when i get involved, it is because 90% of the time, the tenant is the only one who gets the notice, though the notice is addressed both to the tenant and landlord. next thing you see, you are handed a piece of paper by some stranger, and it is a lawsuit. then you need to find a lawyer. probably 90% of these cases are in federal court. it becomes much more costly to get a lawyer involved. most lawyers charged somewhere between $5,000 or $10,000 to get involved in some of these cases. you need to file a formal answer in the court. you will be in a mediation process, which means you will meet with people appointed by the court to try to resolve this issue. the revolution is just what i said. it is major repairs if they are appropriate, and not all repairs are in demand. and, to settle the damaged portion of the case. in my experience, the damages claimed usually run somewhere between $15,000 or $5,000, and attorneys

, they each have two good defensive teams. they have been throughout the regular season but -- both errors, two on each team leading to extra errors. in to the top of the 7th inning. the young rookie for the orioles still in the game. they haven't gone to the bullpen but the orioles have managed to get across three runs on the veteran petit. we will see if he comes back out for the bottom the 7th inning. really strange game. perhaps the weather has something to do with that. it's very cold. the rain delay. not many home runs. still there -- a tense game and important game for the orioles. tomorrow night as the orioles down 2-0. >> reporter: i know it's cold and raining but we saw a couple shots. >> i talked to a lot of people before the game started they are excited to be here, buck talked about trying to win that wild card game and get back to baltimore it give the fans the home playoff game. they got that last night. take the next step forward and give the fans a win. >> we will come back in a few. 3-2 now. the orioles section of our web page is a great way to keep up with the team an

has a bright line. it says if you engage in a wongful action, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, how do we want to account for that if at all in the criminal justice system? to date, we haven't. in th
. also renowned criminal defense attorney, mark geragos. you say jerry sandusky is opening the wound for the victims by releasing this statement. >> yes, anderson, i believe he is. what's happening is that sandusky is taking every opportunity to continue to torment these victims. he's now accusing them, in fact, made a direct reference to victim one by saying he started everything. there is no conspiracy here. there is no making these accusations for any reason other than to put mr. sandusky behind bars for the rest his life because of th heinous acts that he perpetrated on these victims. >> mark, what about this? he is alleging this basically huge conspiracy against him by just about everybody, putting out a statement like this the night before the sentencing hearing, is that something you would ever advise a client to do? >> no. the last thing you are going to want to do is advise a client i want you to go in there, you're better off just saying nothing. however, as a practical matter, he's going to get a life sentence, whether it's a number of years, whether it's consecutive, what

of the speech yesterday from governor romney where he talked about defense cuts and his proposals, paul ryan voted for the sequester and cuts, how does paul ryan defend his original budget and medicare proposals in contrast to what governor romney is now proposing? >> well, what matters now is, what is governor romney's plan going forward and paul ryan has signed up for the romney plan. specifically with respect to the sequester, governor romney is opposed to it. in fact, when that was decided last summer governor romney issued a statement specifically mentions the prospect of some devastating cuts to our national defense budget should sequestration become necessary. so the governor has made it a priority to reverse the obama defense cuts. it's not just the $500 billion that will happen as a result of sequestratio sequestration, another $500 billion in the works. the president's defense secretary has said the combination of the obama defense cuts with sequestration will be devastating to our military. it will further weaken our standings in the world and embolden our adversaries. >> what abo
